>>> Iris Was a Prisoner in Solitary Confinement for Years-Until Now
Iris the chimpanzee was held captive for years at a roadside zoo in Georgia and denied everything that was natural and important to her.

Watch the video of her remarkable rescue and see her meeting another chimpanzee for the first time in years!
